Setting up a schedule for the FRITZ!Box's Wi-Fi network

The schedule function allows you to automatically switch the FRITZ!Box's Wi-Fi on and off at certain times. In the FRITZ! Mesh, the FRITZ!Box (Mesh Master) transmits the scheduling settings to all Mesh Repeaters (for example FRITZ!Repeater) and thus ensures that the Wi-Fi is switched off in the entire Mesh at night, for example.

Regardless of the schedule, you can activate or deactivate the Wi-Fi at any time by briefly pushing the WLAN button on the FRITZ!Box. You can activate or deactivate the FRITZ!Box's Wi-Fi by selecting "Home network" > "Wi-Fi" on a FRITZ!Fon, or you can enter the keypad code #96*1* or #96*0* on a different telephone. If Wi-Fi is enabled on the FRITZ!Box, you can also enable Wi-Fi on the Mesh Repeaters by briefly pushing the Connect or WPS button.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.
